Help please
Newbie here , I have a fiat 500x 56 plate
When we turn the engine on the following warning have just started to appear

Welcome

As above, any list of seemingly unconnected faults is usually down to a dying battery. Get it checked out or replaced.

Mine had all the same symptoms and the battery was dud.
I work in a fiat garage and we get loads of them in for dodgy batteries

Re: Problems with my fiat 500x

The battery is reading 2 bars when I get in and goes up to 3 bars when I switch on , could it still be the battery ?

Re: Problems with my fiat 500x

Just a bump for this one. We were out in our 500X MJ yesterday when the Check Engine Light came on/No S/S etc. Car appeared to go in to Limp mode as although I could drive it there was little acceleration. I pulled off to the side of the road and turned the engine off - waited 10 seconds then restarted. Lights/errors stayed on but car was then back to driving perfectly normal. Once we got back home I check the Battery indicator on the dash (although did not do a Volt-meter test as none to hand.) Looked normal. I then disconnected the S/S additional battery cable for 10 seconds and reconnected and now all errors/lights have gone and car completely fine. It was absolutely chucking it down so I initially thought water? Me and my big gob recently saying out car has been faultless although as mentioned no issues at all again now! It was close to Zero degrees this morning where I live and car starts fine - S/S functions as usual. Thoughts?
